8 Benefits of Bioclear Veneers
Not happy with the color of your teeth? Has the cost of cosmetic procedures put a damper on your smile makeover plans? We’ve got some exciting news for you. Valley Dental Clinic offers a natural-looking solution for people who want to fix their teeth but don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on porcelain veneers or braces. It’s called Bioclear! Here’s why our patients love this revolutionary smile makeover technique.
1. Preserves tooth structure
Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of Bioclear veneers is how minimally invasive the entire procedure is. With traditional porcelain veneers, your dentist will need to shave away a portion of your enamel so the tooth-colored shells fit properly.
This isn’t necessary with Bioclear veneers. Your dentist will place the Bioclear veneers directly onto the tooth surface, adding structure rather than removing it. Most experts claim that preserving tooth structure statistically decreases the potential for nerve death within the tooth, which then makes it less likely that a root canal treatment or extraction becomes necessary.
2. Completed in one appointment
Getting porcelain veneers requires multiple visits to the dentist. Apart from the consultation appointment, you’ll need to go in for some preparatory work, wait for two to three weeks for an offsite lab to fabricate the veneers, and then schedule another appointment for the final fitting. That’s assuming everything goes according to plan.
Patients who get Bioclear veneers love that multiple visits are not necessary. The entire Bioclear procedure takes only one appointment to complete. So any smile imperfections that have bothered you for years can be fixed in a matter of hours.
3. Longer-lasting results
By choosing Bioclear over porcelain veneers, you don’t have to sacrifice longevity. The revolutionary technique is extremely durable, and with proper care, it can last up to 15 years before it needs replacement. This lifespan is comparable to the 10 to 15 years patients get from porcelain veneers.
4. Restores strength
Most people choose veneers to hide tooth imperfections. Bioclear veneers have the added benefit of also improving the strength of your tooth. The technique involves specially designed clear matrices and warm injection molding that gives it monolithic strength, three times stronger than bonding. So if you have chips, cracks, or breaks, Bioclear veneers can restore the strength of your tooth and prevent further damage.
Smile makeovers often require a significant financial investment. Because most dental plans don’t cover cosmetic procedures like porcelain or Bioclear veneers, patients end up paying for the treatments out of pocket. One of the biggest positives for a lot of our patients is that Bioclear is cheaper than its alternatives.
Bioclear veneers can cost 25% to 50% less than a traditional set of veneers, allowing you to enjoy similar smile benefits at a fraction of the cost. For a more accurate quote, you’ll need to schedule an evaluation with your dentist.
6. Fixes black triangles
If you have dark areas between your teeth or around your gumline, you’re not alone. An estimated 67% of people aged 20 and up have these “black triangles” too. These spaces not only detract from the appearance of your smile but can also compromise your oral health due to gum recession and movement of teeth after orthodontics.
Bioclear is a cost-effective, minimally invasive treatment that fills in the black triangles between teeth. Plus, it works for more than dark triangles; your dentist can use the technique to fix other smile irregularities like gaps between teeth and small teeth.
7. Reversible process
You cannot regrow enamel once it’s removed, nor can you reshape or regrow a tooth to its original form. So once your dentist prepares your teeth and bonds veneers to them, you’ll always need them. If the veneers get damaged or stained, the only way to improve your smile is to have a dentist remove your veneers and replace them with new ones.
Things are completely different with Bioclear veneers. If you decide you no longer like them or would like to try a different cosmetic dental procedure, your dentist can simply remove the thin layer, and you’ll have your natural teeth back.
The first thing you probably think about after a cosmetic procedure is how long the results will last. Bioclear material doesn’t stain, so the gorgeous hue you walk out of our office with will be the same one you see six months down the line. Provided you maintain good oral hygiene and keep up with regular dental cleanings, you can enjoy an everlasting white smile for years to come.
